Post pics of T-Molding color changes. Are you matching the color with your powder coat?

Here's a few of the t-moldings that I've changed. Sorry for the poor picture quality, my basement is a bit dark. Games are Cybernaut, Cactus Jack's, and Shaq Attaq. I just received an email that the t-molding I ordered for my Super Mario Bros is at the post office, so I will hopefully be posting a pic of it in this thread soon too.

Here is my black edition LOTR (before the ColorDMD, but you get the idea).....

I replaced the black molding on Lights camera action, with some silver molding. It definitely brightens up the game:

The black on the LOTR looks like it should have shipped that way, great color choice!

Thanks, here are a few pics of my LOTR as she now sits.

I've also included my TRON with orange trim and T-molding. The TRON was updated before my possession. While I like it in orange, blue would look better IMO.....

yeah blue might look better but the orange is still way cool.
why are the top and bottom T-Moldings still silver?

That's factory, don't know why whoever did it that way, but it breaks it up nicely, and also looks very Stern Spike like....

I did my Tron cocktail in blue trim.

I like to match trim to armor. The gnr backglass lift panel is metal and powder coated to match. Plastic one kept breaking.

Speaking of T-Molding...Do I just punch T-Molding into google and buy what comes up, or is there a special size? I need to replace the molding on my Avatar. It’s all bitched up.

3/4" inch is the size need. You can also check with your local parts store or distributor for T-Molding (there are 20 different colors)

Do you get any glare or distraction while playing?

Cool. Never saw that before. Fits game well.

#22 4 months ago

Mario’s done. Though I used a different brand of t molding this time and it wasn’t nearly as nice to work with. Mario doesn’t have any bends in its t molding though so it still worked well enough.

I never felt the need to swap T molding until I got my SW Premium. The white T molding just sticks out like a sore thumb. It is hideous whether the game is powered on or off. Black looks 1000x better. I took a picture with one white and one black.

Hoops, orange t-molding, before and after. Pretty easy job. Took less than 1 hour.
